This handsome waterfront home is located at 94 Kilkenny Place in the Woodbridge Bay section of Alameda's Harbor Bay Isle. While it might appear that it to be found at a pleasant recreational resort, it is just moments from central Alameda. It is spacious and inviting, and offers 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms in 2550+/- square feet of living space.
Perfectly placed, it is not far from the many popular shops and restaurants in Alameda, with freeway access to both Oakland and San Francisco available minutes away. For recreational opportunities, the residence is surrounded by jogging and bicycling paths along the Isle's waterfront stunning views. A public 18 hole golf course is close by.
An expansive back yard provides generous space for relaxation and entertainment while enjoying the view of the adjacent waterway. A large sliding glass door provides immediate access to the kitchen for ease in food service during special parties or events.
The handsome street presence of the home reveals a two car garage, and the multi level gables that add additional charm to its appeal. It is conceived in such a way that much of the living area is back from the street, providing a quieter living experience.
The living room is immediately engaging and welcoming, and is radiant with the glowing light that flows in from a virtual wall of windows and doors that open to the outside patio area. The vaulted ceiling carries the light to the top of the room, drawing it upwards to the second floor. The stairs to the second floor are both pleasing and graceful in design.
Adjacent to the stairwell is this very flexible dining area. As seen here, it is ideal for a daily meal, but it can easily accommodate a much larger dining table, buffet and china cabinet, should the need arise.
Adjacent to the dining room is this remodeled kitchen that has been created with the goal of providing the best for the most demanding of chefs. Amenities include custom cabinets, slab granite counters, professional stainless steel appliances a microwave, a built in oven, self cleaning oven, dishwasher, and gas range/cooktop.
A large family room is seen to the left of the counter that furnishes an ideal space for pizza parties, game or media nights, while enjoying the warmth of the large brick fireplace when desired.
Another perspective of the family room reveals its generous size that allows multiple configurations of the floor space to accommodate specific needs for its use. It is ideally suited for an evening's relaxation while relishing the soothing water views close by.
A reverse view of the kitchen seen above includes the cozy eat-in kitchen space located close to the door that leads to the outside patio area. Once again, the concept of light filled rooms is illustrated here.
Large floor to ceiling windows and doors are complimented with the glow from generous recessed lighting and hanging lamps throughout these rooms.
There are four bedrooms in the home. Three will be shown for your consideration and review. Above is the primary bedroom that offers a full length wall of view windows topped by desirable clerestory window for yet more light. Its high, off white ceiling compliments the soft golden color of the hardwood floors below.
The primary bedroom and en suite bathroom have been dramatically remodeled. Featured is a huge walk in closet, a gleaming dual sink counter paired with a full width mirror, and generous storage space .
The full sweep of the primary bathroom is stunning. The row of lights above the sink, and the light above the bath reflect off the high peaked ceiling to create an amazing radiance throughout the room that is only matched by the large view windows at the end of the space. A walk in shower and sunken tub add to the elegance.
Just across the hall is a second bedroom that provide a wall of sliding door closet space, and full width, centrally placed windows.
There is a small bedroom located on the main floor that would be an ideal guest room if needed. It is presently being used as an office space, but can be easily converted back to a bedroom.
This pergola topped side garden is soothing, and while already planted with numerous trees and additional greenery, is still flexible enough for additional landscaping if desired.
The rear patio and yard are welcoming, and offer multiple opportunities for their use. The stairs to the right lead down to the lagoon and a fenced deck, providing easy access to the water. There is a sizable space available for entertaining and hosting parties and special events.
This perfect waterside setting is one that immediately inviting and soothing, and, as the seasons change, always unique and surprising.
